ASTM C1176

Full Name

ASTM C1176 – Standard Practice for Making Roller-Compacted Concrete in Cylinder Molds Using a Vibrating Table


This practice covers procedures for making cylindrical test specimens from concrete when the standard procedures of rodding and internal vibration, as described in Practice C31/C31M, are not practicable.

This practice is applicable to freshly mixed concrete, prepared in the laboratory and the field, having a nominal maximum size aggregate of 50 mm [2 in.] or less. If the nominal maximum size aggregate is larger than 50 mm [2 in.], the practice is applicable only when performed on the fraction passing the 50-mm [2-in.] sieve with the larger aggregate being removed in accordance with Practice C172.

This practice, intended for use in testing roller-compacted concrete, may be applicable to testing other types of concrete such as cement-treated aggregate and mixtures similar to soil-cement.
